AV integrator Saville Audio Visual was the only UK partner to be recognised by NEC Display Solutions Europe at its 2016/17 Display Trends Forum in Rome. The Partner Awards ceremony honoured the achievements of six outstanding NEC channel partners over the past year.
Bringing together key customers, industry influencers, business leaders and the NEC top management team, the Forum provides a platform to learn about new and emerging technologies and shape the future of visual experience and display innovations.
More than 120 people from 23 countries attended the event at the Boscolo Exedra Roma hotel, to explore key industry trends likely to gain prominence in 2017 and beyond. Alongside awards for NEC channel partners from Germany, Italy, Poland and Norway, Saville was named as Most Innovative Installation Partner.
The award highlighted the company’s innovative design and installation work in The Atrium at the University of West of Scotland. This included a nine-screen NEC reception videowall plus a unique, pivoting videowall installation using 32 NEC screens, driven from sixteen 4K UHD inputs.
NEC General Manager (UK and Benelux), Neil Hartigan commented: “It is only through the commitment and dedication of our partners that NEC can truly deliver an exceptional customer experience, so we are delighted to use the NEC Display Trends Forum to recognise the outstanding contribution they make. This year, Saville AV were thoroughly deserving of their accolade and we were delighted to see the UK partner network represented amongst the European award winners.”
Accepting the award, Saville Sales and Marketing Director, Andy Dyson said: “When we arrived at the venue, we weren’t even aware that there was to be an awards ceremony! We were surprised and delighted to receive this remarkable honour.”
